Technological breakthrough by which the world is so inspired, is an important factor in the development of modern society. It is obvious that the formation of a new reality is taking place - the “digital one”, which has no analogues in the history of mankind. Various spheres of public life are suffering changes, as well as social institutions and regulators. Law becomes not only a tool, an instrument that provides for the adaptation of the economy, management and other segments of social life to new conditions, but also the object of the impact of digitalization, as a result of which it changes its forms, content, mechanism of formation and action. The state reacts differently to the challenges of the digital reality, trying to manage the ongoing transformations and regulate new, as well as altering social relations. Readers are invited to analyze the results of the study, reflecting the author’s observations of the metamorphoses of law and legislation, assessing changes and trends in their dynamics, hypotheses, doctrinal decisions and forecasts of the future state of law.
Keywords: state, legislation, information, information array, source of law, law, legal regulation, form of law, digital reality, digitalization, digital technologies.
